My Students

My students are a great group of kiddos. We have a soccer team at our school which we will play other local schools in our community.

They are very respectful kids and always keeping up their grades never miss a practice.

Our equipment is out dated, I think the kids would be very excited to have new equipment this year. My student's are very community involved as well. Our soccer team will be doing many community volunteer projects in the local area. They are just a great group of kids to work with.

My Project

Hi I am new to Franklin Middle School this year and will be putting together a sixth grade soccer team. We will need balls to practice and do drills, so that we can improve our over all skills for the 2019-2020 school year. The ball bag will be used to store balls. Goalie gloves will be used not only to protect our goalie's hands but to help improve his or hers skills during practice. We will play against other middle schools in the area and with the equipment I am requesting our students over all training will go a lot smoothly. Thanks in advance to all those willing to help.
